The Melbourne Underground Film Festival is thrilled to announce the official dates and venues of its 12th annual festival (MUFF XI).
2011 DATES ARE TBC BELOW IS MUFF 2010 ARTICLE
MUFF II is at three screening venues. These will be: Open Channel?s Shed 4 Cinema in the Docklands, Thousand Pound Bend in the Melbourne CBD, and the gorgeous Classic Cinema in Elsternwick.
Regular MUFF features will return for 2010, including Mini MUFF; the best of this year?s short film entries, and MUFF Neu; a selection of new feature films from Australia and around the world, as well as an exclusive retrospective program to be announced shortly.
Highlights of MUFF XIs forthcoming features program including The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. This bizarre and hilarious Johnny Knoxville-produced documentary arrives at MUFF hot on the heels of much international exposure and acclaim, following America's last outlaw family, the infamous Whites, through their countless and shameless transgressions.
Joseph Sims? Bad Behaviour will delight fans of Tarantino and the Coen brothers as well as general violence-hounds and lovers of slick n? sick Aussie cinema. Starring John Jarratt of Wolf Creek, Sims? neo-noir tracks the exploits of two sibling psychopaths on a collision course with the residents of a sleepy beach town.
Further stand-out Australian features this year include Dean Francis? highly anticipated Road Train, starring Sophie Lowe (Beautiful Kate, Blessed). A beautifully produced and gripping supernatural thriller, Francis? debut follows the horrifying misadventures of several backpackers forced into conflict with an ominous ?road train? in the Australian outback.
The MUFF XI program, featuring full information on all films selected in 2010 and their screening times and venues (including opening and closing nights), will be released online and in a print catalogue in mid July. Until then, further information can be sought through the MUFF website or by contacting the festival directly.
